Eddie Glaude: I Wish People Were As Concerned About Law And Order With Trump As They Are With Rioters

|

Professor of African American Studies at Princeton University and MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude Jr. said on Thursday that people must understand the context that led to the riots Wednesday night in Minneapolis.

"There's a fear that black lives aren't valued as much as white lives," Glaude said. "Let me be very clear about the protests. Folks have been clamoring about the rioting and the looting. I wish they were as concerned about law and order, Nicolle, with President Trump and his minions as they are with these folks."


"To call for nonviolence is actually a miracle in the midst of ordinary time because human beings' natural inclination when they feel wronged, when they feel put upon, when they're living under oppressed conditions is to lash out. And this is the history of the modern West and the history of the world in some ways. Part of what we have to do is try to understand the context that led to what happened last night," Glaude said.
